Bright Lights

Bright Lights is a nonprofit organization that takes learning beyond the classroom by providing youth with unique, motivating, hands-on learning opportunities.

Why choose Bright Lights?

Our Impact in 2018

  • Students Registered


  • Classes/Camps Offered


  • Scholarships Awarded


  • Teachers


Bright Lights couldn’t exist without our capable, creative and committed team of teachers.  We’re getting ready to open our teacher registration, and we’re always looking to add new expertise and enthusiasm to our team.

While we only have a week to engage with our students and not an entire school year, a major component of our instruction is hands-on learning in a topic of high interest. Students are given the important opportunity to practice skills essential for success beyond the traditional lecture, practice, and testing methodology of the past.

It's time to review what was great about 2018, what we’d like to improve upon, and find new class offerings for our students who will in 2019.
